Islam, Democracy, and Pluralism

This project attempts to create a discussion on democracy, liberalism and pluralism between leaders and academics in an attempt to encourage the development of greater moderation and accommodation within political discourse.  The work centers on two workshops that will bring together academics and political leaders from India, Senegal and Indonesia together with leaders from Pakistan, Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia to facilitate greater understanding of different ways countries have successfully (and unsuccessfully) related to pluralism while negotiating with the beliefs and demands of religious populations.
